I am trying to get a ColdFusion page to display a 'loading...' screen until the page gets redirected to another site.

If I just use this code:

<cfif isdefined("client.ID") and trim(client.ID) gt "">
	<cflocation url="/testing/SVSSOWeb1.asp?MemberID=#client.ID#" addtoken="no">
</cfif>

The page will sit pretty blank until it eventually reloads. I want to have some sort of "loading" appear until the page redirects properly.

I tried this code, which does the proper "Loading..." part but it then never redirects:

<br><br><center>

<span id="loading">
<img src="ajax-loader.gif" alt="please wait"> ... Loading ...
</span>

<cfif isdefined("client.ID") and trim(client.ID) gt "">
	<cflocation url="/testing/SVSSOWeb1.asp?MemberID=#client.ID#" addtoken="no">
</cfif>


Can someone please help combine these two so I can have a "loading" page until the page redirects?

Thank you in advance.
